The Milky Way in the night landscape in Utö. The view was fine, the milky gauze stood out clearly. A fair crescent, because of this, could not shoot in the complete darkness. Then the Milky Way would have stood out even more clearly. In the black and white version, an attempt was made to dig out the structure of the Milky Way better. Basic light from the green channel, stars illuminated with blue channel data ....

Nuuksio under the sky with a camera. The frost banged, just under twenty degrees. A fine breeze also came ... With the naked eye, in my opinion, the sky was not as light-polluted as what could be interpreted from the picture. 36 images in a stack, IRIS software used.

With a little delay comes, we also share my own observation. It would have been handsome to see this fireball with the naked eye (even), now it was up to the camera to grab the flight. The video shows several bright flashes in the sky during the final flight, which is likely to have detached pieces from the song. There is no sound perception, at that moment I was indoors. Waiting for the next bright fireball :-)
